Library Online: Hallam Big Read

A very warm welcome to The Big Read! 

Sheffield Hallam University Library first adopted the Big Read concept in 2019 with hopes of bringing staff and students together by providing a point of common ground on which our students could build meaningful connections and friendships. Each year we pick a book that we think our Hallam community will enjoy reading and talking about, and we have tried to select titles which will educate and challenge. 


The best part of The Big Read is you get a free copy of the book! 

Coming soon

Big Read 2021
Title and author of the chosen book to be released soon.
